Apr 11, 2018 Posted / 831 Views
A Master's degree in Cryptofinance is opening at the Brazilian higher education institution, Fundação Getúlio Vargas, in São Paulo, a city with a populace of 12 million. The course will be centred around the study of digital currencies.
This course in Brazil follows the footsteps of best institutions in the U.S. like Duke, Cornell and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), who have even started giving classes. New York University began teaching on the subject in 2014.
The offering comes as a natural reaction in the education market as blockchain is in high demand all over the world. FGV University means to grow new experts fit for driving the startup ecosystem in Brazil. The course will instruct their students how to develop their own particular cryptocurrency.
Ricardo Rochman, program coordinator at FGV said, “It is a market with a profound lack of people with expertise. Cryptofinance has economic and financial fundamentals that are worth discussing, researched, and taught."
Meanwhile, a gathering of 23 students has made Blockchain Insper, an establishment that goes for creating new technologies and models inside the crypto space. The group has joined forces with five blockchain-based organizations to get coaching from experts who will enable them to enhance their research.
João Perpetuo, a 23-year old student of Economics and co-founder of Blockchain Insper, said:
“We had the humility of recognising that we can’t do it on our own."
Encouraged by a similar Berkeley University concept, the group will also give classes and workshops on digital currencies. Before long, they will offer consultancy administrations to their customers.
The Faculty of Economics and Administration of the University of São Paulo (FEA-USP) has included cryptocurrencies as an additional subject in the Derivatives class, where students learn about bitcoin, the comparison between cryptocurrencies and fiat money, and how markets react to these assets. Alan de Genaro, a professor at FEA-USP, made the decision because future professionals “need to learn which factors are beneficial and which are not”.
